    I resemble that remark... I bought the new toilet in October, still not done, but I'll probably finish this week. One obstacle after another, but, it's a boat. I got many other smaller items crossed off the list though...
    I've got that on the list of upgrades for our 2858, I'd love to see pictures of the install process.

    We bought a new Fusion stereo for ours, haven't even started to install yet!

    Yes, Oneida Stainless Steel. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Oneida-Insul...item43ae2e68b5

    Also, has a liner so you just remove that to refill not the whole bucket.

    Such a dead space under there. Had to add something :-).

    Not much, was just about to get into it and it dropped below freezing and we got a dusting of snow overnight.

    Need to dewinterize, new alternator, and install the ducer for the new fishfinder. I did get all the mounts installed and wiring ready for the electronics though. Any work foreward of the alaskan bulkhead(aka inside and dry) is already done

    Well I can say that nothing has been completed.

    With 3 boats they all need something. Some major and a lot of minor things to do.

    Many have been started but none have been finished.

    Bayliner 2355:

    Buff and wax 1/2 done.

    New batteries

    Bottom paint

    sell boat.

    310 SeaRay:

    New canvas and berth interior with carpet. (material is in and started)

    New maninfolds and risers. (Old one off and new parts are in)

    Complete tune-up. (all parts ordered)

    New water heater (Ordered)

    New TV and mount. (received and waiting on install)

    Bottom paint

    New Batteries

    Remove all strips and install new ones.

    Complete buff and wax Gel coat touch up and complete detail.

    Starcraft:

    Complete engine and out drive change. (1/2 completed its only been 2 years now)

    Sand, buff and wax.

    And now I am starting my busy business time of the year.

    Somehow it will all get done between me and the mechanics.

    Kevin, you are just a skite !!!

    I think I have had my boat for 4 year now, and sadly the list of jobs done each year is getting less. Like Reed, I have daughters taht are into horses and that does not hel, but some how I think work etc has increased, and I dont get the time to visit the boat (remember we boat year round) to keep up the repairs. I do have a new water heater on route.

    Cheers

    Didn't finish a few things.

    Overall I'm happy to have done as much as I have since owning the boat for 5 months.

    I put a new reman Michigan Motorz 5.7 in my 2655. I'm waiting for my gimbal housing - should be hear Thursday. Will be doing the Gimbal bearing, bellows, shift cable. I hope to be making my first splash this weekend.
